Careers - Cogent

Careers

We live and breathe our values. That applies to customers and employees alike. We treat people with respect, trust and care.

You’ll love working at Cogent.

Transparency, honesty and creativity underpin everything we do. Wellbeing is also a big part of our day to day.

Our people are respected and celebrated for who they are. We all have different backgrounds, cultures, skills and perspectives, and we’ve all got a story to tell. We want to hear yours.

The perks

As if collaborating with a bunch of smart, humble (but insanely talented) individuals wasn’t enough, you’ll be bringing ideas to life for some of Australia’s top companies and emerging startups.

To do this, every team member is given the freedom and tools to do their best work, both technically and personally. This means respecting and nurturing your wellbeing, development and happiness at every stage of your journey with us. These are just some of the ways we focus on our people.

Transparent Salaries

We believe in total transparency, so have an open salaries model and profit share as mechanisms to share the successes of Cogent with everyone that’s a part of it.

Learning Budget

We’re a group of never ending learners, so every year you have $3000 to spend on training, $500 on books, plus 5 days to simply learn… or read all your books.

Bicycle Icon

Wellness

Discounted gym membership is available to everyone, and when you’re at Cogent HQ there’s bike racks galore, showers, fresh fruit, and free weekly meditation sessions.

Expecting? Congratulations! As a primary carer you’re able to tap into 6 weeks’ paid leave at your normal salary, or 2.5 weeks’ paid leave for secondary carers.

Sunbed Icon

Purchased Leave

You get 4 weeks of annual leave a year, but if you need a little more time to sail around the Greek Islands or work on that side project, who are we to argue? You’re able to buy some extra time just because we get it.

Laptop Icon

Salary Sacrifice

If you’d like to salary sacrifice your laptop, ipad or something else (that you’re legally allowed to), just let us know!

Lifesaver Icon

Support

We’ve got Slack channels like #parenting and #mentalhealth to help each other out wherever we can, or access the fully supported Employee Assistance Program and counselling service to help you along life’s little hiccups.

Clock Icon

Flexibility

And we don’t just say it. Need to drop your kids at basketball? Want some zen time at a yoga class? We get it, encourage it and support it… and we’ll always get you home in time for dinner.

BBQ Icon

Social Events

We genuinely like each other and regularly share a drink or two, play boardgames, brew beer, make sauerkraut or whatever else we feel like!

Meet (some of) our amazing people

And a lot more friendly faces you’ll meet if you join.
